4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at the source. Pitch black. Nose of velvety chocolate, fudge, mild oak, vanilla, and a touch of whiskey. Flavor is pretty whiskey forward with chocolate, roast malt, vanilla, and oak. Smooth and rich. Lingering whiskey, oak and chocolate. If the barrel would have been slightly more dialed back in the flavor department, this would have been top-notch. A pretty darn good effort.

On draft at Vintage. Smell the rye. Nice dark appearance. Taste the rye in all portions of the mouth but come out silky smooth despite the 10.5%.
